|H~mm...... Somehow, there's importance in what you're saying.
Come to think of it, Hinata, when you're on stage, you talk and act the same as your brother, huh? You're able to reform yourself perfectly into "someone that isn't yourself."
|Yeah. The one who's most skilled in this world at "acting as Yuta-kun" is his Oniichan, after all, right? There's a subtle difference between that and "turning into someone completely" though.|
|Buchou also said something similar. That you don't "turn into someone completely" just by following their lines, or something like that.
I have to assimilate the role even more from the depths of my soul, right?
It'll be difficult, but I'll try to do my best. Please watch. I'll turn completely into a "cross-dressed princess"!
I will stand on the same stage as Hokuto-senpai. I don't want to hold him back with clumsy acting.
|We're rooting for you, Tomoya-kun. If there's something that I can help you with, please tell me anything.
...... But please don't turn into your role too much so that you'll forget "your real self," okay? Tomoya-kun, you have that sort of insecurity, so I'm worried.
|I’m telling you, it'll be alright...... No matter what kind of role I play in the extraordinary place that is the stage, if I return to everyday life, I'll be able to recover "myself."
Since someone like you, Hajime, who knows me well from a long time ago, will be waiting there for me, right? ♪
|Location: Garden Terrace|
|You're looking depressed, aren't YOU? Hokkee-kun ♪|
|......Sakasaki. As I have told you many times before, don't call me "Hokkee."|
|HUH~? You let Baru-kun call you that, don't YOU? Is Baru-kun the only excepTION?
Allow me to be familiar enough with you so that I can call you by nickNAME. We are friends, aren't WE? ♪
|When did we become friends......? And by the way, I've said to Akehoshi not to call me Hokke~ more times than I can count.
But that guy, he doesn't listen to what other people say.
|That's true, isn't IT? Baru-kun doesn't listen to what "people" SAY.
However, if you wish for it from your HEART, he will properly listen to YOU.
* In his outlook of the world, you are a rare human being that is on equal terms as him, after all. *
|...... What the hell do you want, Sakasaki? Normally, you don't involve yourself with me. Or should I say, despite the fact that when I have business with you and summon you, you don't respond?|
|I am a free spirit, after ALL. I will decide for myself how to use my own TIME.
They say that time is money, don't THEY......? Forcibly snatching away a person's TIME is larceny, you KNOW.
|You're only good at making excuses, aren't you? The same as ever.
However, though I don't know what your business is, I'm still eating, so leave it for later. It's bad manners to have a chat while in the middle of eating your meals. That's what Obaachan has always said.
|AHAHA, don't be so cold-hearTED. Aren't we classMATES? Let's get along, shall WE? ♪|
|HM, you are going to ignore ME? But even if you plug your ears, even if you look away, it’s no GOOD. That is what you call sorceRY...... Wataru-niisan has entrusted me with a mesSAGE.
It seems that Tomoya-kun will attempt to "create his character" without running away, THUS he says for you to train as WELL.
|Even if he didn't expressly tell me that sort of thing, I know. Tomoya's a strong kid. I believe that he'll overcome this trial, too.|
|* But you were weak, so you ran away, didn't you? *|
|...... That's when I was a first year. Now, I understand the importance of "creating your character."|
|I wanted to see it, you KNOW? Hokkee-kun dressing as a girl...... Every year, they make the freshmen "create characters" that are FOOLish, serving as a test of courage as well, isn't that RIGHT?
It's a strange tradition, isn't IT?
|It's a reasonable training. The pros in movies and theater also do something similar.|
|In order to suit their ROLES, they do things such as expressly gaining weight, don't THEY? Hokkee-kun, aren't you going to cosplay this TIME?|
|This time, there are many plays about day-to-day life, rather. I am learning that as my subject.
Even when I change my outfit, I am me. Adopting a "role" of myself as I am and applying it would be natural.
|AhH. So that's why you're eating a western-style meal in the garden terrace, unlike usuAL. Even though normalLY, you always have a Japanese-style lunchBOX......
My questions have melted aWAY. I can say that it was worth it to speak with YOU ♪
|Did Buchou tell you to come here to verify if I was earnestly doing my training?
The "SS" is also drawing nearer. I haven’t been able to participate in club activities very much, have I?
If it seems like I won't be useful, I'll step down from the role.
I'm aware that Buchou and those doves of his are watching, and since I'm not doing what I usually do, that's why you called on me to check on things.
|What an amusing imaginaTION. I won't confirm nor deny IT. The truth is always within the darkNESS.
What I can say to YOU, is this one THING...
* Thank you for the treat *
|...... Ah! Hey, Sakasaki, you ate my fried prawns, didn't you?|
|I had large expenses this month, you SEE? I'm saving on food expenSES. If you don't finish eating right away, you won't make it in time for class, you KNOW? It would be unwise of you to skip, wouldn't IT......? Class chairman ♪|
|...... You're a strange guy, aren't you? The same as ever. As expected of that Masked Pervert's favorite.|
|The same can actually be said of you, can't IT? As fellow "sorcerer's apprentices," let us study hard and cultivate our talents from here on out as well, YES?
That will be all, THEN. Farewell, Hokkee-kun. If it is our destiny, let us meet AGAIN......♪
|Right. Although we're classmates, so at any rate, we'll probably meet again right away.|
